Try This Brilliant Vegetarian Version of Spicy Tuna Sushi Rolls

Sushi probably tops the list of foods I'd never get tired of, and one of my favorite things to order if I'm having sushi is the traditional Spicy Tuna Roll that every sushi joint in America seems to have. But it's not really the tuna that makes me love Spicy Tuna Rolls so much, it's the spicy mayo that gets slathered on the rice and tuna to give it that heat-up-your-mouth flavor. ...more

Nevertheless, our windowsills were, in fact, spotless for the weeks of her visit. ...more
